Most likely, all the members of your list are hidden - probably because
"Conceal the member's address" is one of the new_member_options
selected on the list's General Options page. Hidden members do not
appear in the list from the email "who" or on the web roster

Presumably, you can't use the command line


to get the membership list. If you have the standard web admin
interface, you can script it to get a membership list or to "unhide"
all the members. See
